Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti Day 1: thanks, my friend


post 2 of 2 for today...click HERE for my Guest Designer post.




Hey there 'Fetti Fans, it's the Countdown to Confetti Day 1!!!!

On the 8th all the new Reverse Confetti stamps and confetti cuts AND the limited edition Quick Card Panels will be available for purchase. We will be counting down the fun until New Release Day! 




Our June 'Fetti Friend is:  Vanessa Menhorn

Today, we're featuring
Mermaid Kisses  (stamps + confetti cuts)
Seaside (stamps + confetti cuts)

I used Mermaid Kisses on my card for today:


Do you see what I see?  It's the hip Starbucks mermaid💚  I couldn't resist!  The sentiment is from the A Friend Like You and the circle is from the Flowers for Mom confetti cuts.

I have another card using the Seaside stamp set:


I adore the new Seaside set for the fun nautical theme and sassy sentiments.  A little story about this shaker card.  

I have to tell you that I was getting crabby trying to take a photog!  I ended up using putting on the foam adhesive before the acetate panel...so rather than risk damaging the card, I left the foam adhesive on and put the acetate and then another layer of foam adhesive...that's what is adding to the photog glare, although in person, you can't tell.

I can't wait to hop around and see what my teamies designed!  Leave a comment on all the sneak peeks post for each designer.  Comments will close at noon CST on June 7th and there will be a $15 Gift Certificate for one blog commenter and also one FB commenter.
